We’ve got it covered


BASF supplies the market with an entire portfolio of coatings products and processes that improve efficiencies and reduce fuel consumption, including color stabilizers and coatings that contribute to the overall strength of the vehicle.


Resist the effects of heat, cold, rain, burning sunshine and mechanical stress with BASF’s Elastocoat®. Elastocoat is not a superficial coating for aesthetic appeal only. It provides a new skin—high in mechanical resilience and resistant to both chemical and climactic impact—and gives a high-gloss, scratch-resistant layer over the car’s paintwork. Coatings are also used on windscreens to provide greater strength.


What’s new in coatings? Our high-gloss, paint-free, scratch resistant surface enhancement materials, as seen in “Ford Piano Black” on the 2013 Ford Fusion.
